Rebel Records has released a single from The Kody Norris Show’s debut album All Suited Up.
Brand New Hit in Nashville releases worldwide today after premiering on Roughstock.com this past Wednesday. The song will also be the third radio single released from All Suited Up and both will be available from the 23rd April. This single follows two prior singles that have performed well at radio: Love Bug and Ole Carolina.
Brand New Hit in Nashville encapsulates the dream of every budding bluegrass and country musician hoping to write that one hit song that leads to fame and fortune in Music City, USA. It was written by Gary Sanders and years ago captured the attention of a then 12-year old Kody Norris, as portrayed at the beginning of the video. Years later, Norris makes this song his own.
We filmed part of this in Nashville and the other half in our hometown of Mountain City, Tennessee, even incorporating an actual job site into the video! It was a blast having the band in a little bit different element from what we are used to. We are so excited to share the final product with our fans as it truly captures the spirit of the song – Kody Norris.
All Suited Up is quite an appropriate title for this retro-lovin’ traditional group, founded by Kody more than a decade ago. All Suited Up was produced by Darin Aldridge and the 12-track project promises to be an ideal representation of the unique sound that is The Kody Norris Show: rooted in tradition, always with a new twist, anchored by first-rate musicianship.

About The Kody Norris Show:
Call it retro, hillbilly, bluegrass or rockabilly, the group strives for something Kody simply calls “dern good entertainment.” Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Norris has crafted a performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin’s showmanship, the Stanley Brothers’ harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry and a bit of Vaudeville. Top notch picking is center stage, but humor and visual flash are part of the entertaining package. Always clad in colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats and ornate boots, the band earns its moniker as a “show.” The brand is traditional, clean cut, acoustic and always entertaining.
The foursome is fronted by Norris on guitar and his fiddling “sweetie,” Mary Rachel Nalley, Josiah Tyree on banjo and Cousin Charlie Lowman on the bass!
The band’s album, When I Get The Money Made, was named 2017 Bluegrass Album of the Year by the National Traditional Country Music Association. The Kody Norris Show was honored with 7 nominations in the 2018 SPBGMA Awards in Nashville.
Playing 90+ dates a year, The Kody Norris Show covers the road from Canada to Mexico, only missing two states to date. They’ve been part of the University of Chicago Folk Festival and have performed at the Smithsonian and the Kennedy Center and are part of two weekly programs on the acclaimed RFD-TV’s network, The Cumberland Highlanders Show and The Bluegrass Trail.
The Kody Norris Show just signed their first major record deal with Rebel Records from Charlottesville, Virginia.
